Slip and fall cases may sound trite, but they can be devastating. Each year thousands of people are seriously injured and even killed by falling. Imagine your mother, father, grandparent, other loved one, or yourself, suffering a broken hip, fractured spine or worse as a result of someone inviting people to their place of business and making no effort to maintain a safe walking area, or worse, knowingly leaving dangerous areas unrepaired to save money. A fall can be deadly, especially for the elderly. For this reason, the law places standards on property owners inviting the public in to do business.
People are not rewarded for their own carelessness or negligence, but in cases where an owner invited people in with hidden dangers the owner knew or should have known about, the law does allow for a claim. In North Carolina, the old “invitee” standards have been abandoned in favor of negligence standards.
